Goya Donates 300,000 Pounds Of Food To Honduras, El Salvador, And Guatemala #GoyaGivesGlobal

PR Newswire

JERSEY CITY, N.J., Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in The United States, donates 300,000 pounds of food to the people of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. The donation is part of the company's on-going #GoyaGivesGlobal campaign and distribution has already begun with the aid of Plan Trifinio, dedicated to improving the living conditions of border communities in the region of Trifinio in Central America. 

The food has been shipped directly from Goya's Texas facility to Trifinio, a territory of 7,541 km2, where the borders of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras meet and form 49 municipalities.  70% of almost one million inhabitants live in rural areas and are in desperate need of food and water.  While working with the municipal authorities that are part of the cross-border region and a group of youth and female volunteers, Plan Trifinio has guaranteed the safe transport and delivery of bags, weighing 20 pounds each of food, to the people of each region.

"We have been faced with an unprecedented global crisis that has affected us all.  Our #GoyaGivesGlobal campaign demonstrates Goya's history of giving critical assistance to people who need it the most, not just here in the United States, but around the globe and we will do whatever we can to help those in need," said Bob Unanue, President of Goya Foods.

In times of desperate need, Goya has always been at the forefront of disaster and humanitarian relief efforts, providing millions of pounds of food worldwide.  Through Goya Gives, a global program committed to promoting the overall well-being of communities through social responsibility, environmental initiatives, and company values, Goya supports each year nearly 300 charitable endeavors, scholarships, and events.  Since the start of the pandemic, the company has donated a total of 2.5 million pounds of food and 20,000 protective masks.
